We view plastic surgery through a modern, empowered lens
Aligned with our core ethos that women’s health is all-encompassing, we’re supporting our patients through all stages of womanhood by introducing plastic surgery services. Getting back to your body shouldn’t be an uphill struggle. That’s why we’re offering an array of cutting-edge cosmetic procedures to meet your unique needs, led by our renowned board-certified surgeon.
A New Approach to Plastic Surgery
- If you’ve found your way to Viva Eve for any of the myriad wellness services we provide, you’re a woman who not only believes in seeking the best possible care, you’re also about taking full ownership of your self-confidence.
- Throughout the course of your life, you may find that your body just doesn’t look the way it used to. While having kids can add untold joy, there’s also every chance that pregnancy has done a number on your body. Saggy breasts, lose belly skin, extra pounds that refuse to budge no matter how much you diet and exercise – all of that can affect how you feel about yourself when you look in the mirror.
- Whether you’re looking to reclaim your post-baby body or enhance your natural beauty (baby or no baby!), we’re here to help you find your way back to you. Through a carefully crafted plan tailored to your individual needs, lifestyle and body, we work with you to design a plastic surgery protocol that restores your image.
- It’s a modern, empowered take that recognizes your right to feel great about yourself.
What Sets Our Plastic Surgery Services Apart
In a world teeming with cosmetic procedures, Viva Eve stands apart in its approach. How? In short, because of our legacy. With 30+ years of experience providing wellness services to women, we are uniquely positioned to deliver female- and mom-centric cosmetic procedures that take the full scope of each patient’s needs into account.
In many cases, we’ll have accompanied our patient on her journey to motherhood, and that in-depth history can be game-changing in helping to envision and realize her optimal post-baby body.
In addition to the extensive bonds we’ve built with our patients, our facility is world-class. Certified by the AAAASF (American Association of the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities), it’s a state-of-the-art space designed to deliver the best possible experience that meets every need.
Mommy Makeover Services We Provide
Designed to address all major post-baby body concerns, our procedures are geared toward reversing the toll pregnancy and breastfeeding may have taken on your breasts, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Collectively and separately, the services outlined below are known as a “mommy makeover.” Trust that as the leader in 360° women’s wellness, encompassing all aspects of obstetrics, Viva Eve’s plastic surgery team is extraordinarily well-qualified to perform each and every one.
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgeries that are typically completed in a single setting, including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and repair of the separated abdominal muscles seen in pregnancies (diastasis recti repair) and selective liposuction.Mommy Makeover
Also known as a mastopexy, a breast lift seeks to elevate tissue that’s headed south due to nursing and pregnancy-related weight gain. Projection and volume are restored, enhancing balance and proportion.Breast Lift
Achieved via implants or fat transfer, augmentation can restore what breastfeeding has taken away–or even create a whole new look you’ve never had before. Our team will work with you on the ideal breast size and shape to complement your post-baby body.Breast Augmentation
When even grueling workouts and strict calorie restriction don’t move the needle on belly flab, a tummy tuck (aka abdominoplasty) may be in order. Excess fat is removed, stretch marks are smoothed and a more attractive midsection emerges.Tummy Tuck
Diastasis Recti Repair
A very common condition that’s especially prevalent in moms over 35 and those who have twins or triplets, diastasis recti is a separation of the muscles along the midsection of the stomach. Once a diagnosis of diastasis recti has been made, our surgeon can stitch those muscles back together, eliminating that “pooch” undermining your self-confidence.Diastasis Recti Repair

If you are not already a Viva Eve patient, your Viva Eve plastic surgeon will gather information about your general medical history and examine your areas of concern. This is your opportunity to address changes you’re looking to make. We encourage our patients to be as specific as possible about their post-baby body goals, so your surgeon can recommend the most effective procedures. Together, you’ll devise a treatment protocol that’s both realistic and customized for your specific body and needs.
If you’re a new mother in good overall health who is seeking to make a few tweaks to your breasts, abdomen, buttocks or thighs, you may be right for a Mommy Makeover. Ideal candidates are women who are finished having children and have tried to achieve a more toned, lifted, slimmer appearance through diet and exercise but have seen limited results.
Viva Eve’s expert plastic surgeons recommending waiting six months after you’ve finished breastfeeding your youngest – and ideally last – child before having any Mommy Makeover procedures. This allows your breasts to stabilize in shape and size, which allows for the most accurate surgical assessment. It’s also recommended that new mothers maintain their post-pregnancy weight for approximately six months prior to seeking a Mommy Makeover. This waiting period ensures your body is stabilized and has recovered from the stresses of pregnancy and childbirth before you undergo any type of surgical procedure.
